This was a find!

Good morning! I recently bought a book on Ebay for 9.99, but you can occasionally find this book at Amazon.com in the used section for less. Mine is perfect and 10.00 was a deal! It normally retails for 24.95 at bookstores. This is like the finding the jackpot at the end of the rainbow for us vintage children’s card lovers!

This book is chock full of all of the wonderful cards we look for every day! And the scans are really good! So we can copy these easily for our tags and gifts we make others! There are copyright laws for these images as far as re-selling the images….but not if we use them personally.

There is 223 of colorful , wonderful vintage cards! Sorry the scan is a little crooked. :) I just wanted you to see a page. A great way to get out images without having to buy the cards all the time, and pay a fortune for them!

So, be on the outlook girls, you know who you are! LOL

Have a good week!

What a great book! My mom saved all my birthday cards and then I - thoughtless person that I can sometimes be - threw them away. What was I thinking? So glad some of them have been saved and are even in a book.
